Scunci Expandable Ponytailer ($2.99) Finally, a clip that can expand to fit every type of hair. This expandable ponytailer makes ponytails and buns fast and easy. Just expand the clip, thread your hair through the middle, then collapse for a snug fit that will last all day.
I love the concept and the design, but it’s not a product for me or for people who have a lot of hair. I noticed for my friends who have a normal* amount of hair it worked great. The Expandable Ponytailer is a circular accordion-type clip that opens and expands to about 2.25 inches (5.5cm) diameter. The inside of the clip is lined with teeth that grab onto your hair for a secure hold.
When I tied my hair up in a bun and tried to place the clip around the bun, it wouldn’t fit because of my excess amount of thick hair. When I used it as a ponytail holder, it worked. Because of my large amount of hair, I had to tie my hair up with an elastic hair tie first to make sure my ponytail stayed in place. For me, the Expandable Ponytailer acted more like a stylish way to hid the elastic. For my friends with normal amount of hair, they were able to secure their buns with the Expandable Ponytailer easily, and tie their hair up in a ponytail minus the use of an elastic hair tie. I really wish the Scunci Expandable Ponytailer worked for me. It would’ve been perfect for work.
*I don’t mean to offend anyone by saying “normal”. By “normal” I mean about 1/3 to 1/2 the amount of hair I have. Yes, I have that much hair. I have enough hair for 2-3 people.
